All to play for as Golden awards races go down to final day

22 May 2022

Salah? Son? See who is in the running to finish with the most goals, assists and clean sheets

At the end of every season, the Premier League presents three Golden Awards; the Golden Boot, Golden Glove and Playmaker of the Season to the player, or players, to have scored, saved and created the most.

Golden Boot

The race for the Premier League Golden Boot is finely poised ahead of the final day of the season.

Son Heung-min, who has scored 21 goals, is now within one of the leader and two-time winner Mohamed Salah and is the form player heading into the run-in, as he targets his first Castrol Golden Boot award.

The South Korean has struck 10 times in his last nine matches for Tottenham Hotspur to close the gap on the Liverpool star.

Salah 22 WOL (H)
Son 21 NOR (A)

Son will fancy his chances of increasing his tally when Spurs travel to relegated Norwich City, having netted in December's reverse fixture.

Salah, who missed Liverpool's midweek 2-1 win at Southampton on Tuesday through injury, will hope to be fit for their final league fixture against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

If he and Son are level after Sunday's matches, it will be only the third time that the award has been shared.

Should Salah win, he would become only the fourth player to claim the Golden Boot for a third time, after Premier League Hall of Fame inductees Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry, and the current holder Harry Kane.

Golden Glove

The battle for the Castrol Golden Glove is even closer, with the two frontrunners level.

Alisson and Ederson have each kept 20 clean sheets for Liverpool and Manchester City respectively.

Ederson 20 AVL (H)

The two Brazilians have home advantage in their final matches, with Alisson facing Wolves, while Ederson meets Aston Villa.

Ederson could become only the third man to claim the Golden Glove in three consecutive campaigns, after Pepe Reina for Liverpool and Joe Hart for Man City.

Alisson could match his total of 21 shutouts from 2018/19, the joint second-best tally in history, when he claimed his first and only Golden Glove.

Golden playmaker

Salah heads into the final day with a slight advantage as he looks to claim his first Premier League Playmaker of the Season award.

His tally of 13 assists is only one ahead of team-mate Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The Egyptian is only one assist away from equalling Kane's winning total from last season, as he aims to match the Spurs striker's 2020/21 double-achievement of winning both the Golden Boot and Playmaker awards in the same campaign.
